DIY Valentines Pillow Boxes

Today I have a quick and easy Valentine’s Day project to share with you: DIY Valentine’s pillow boxes! These cute little pillows boxes are the perfect way to spread a bit of love on Valentine’s Day; fill them with candy, or add a love note, and pass them out! They only take about ten minutes to make and you only need an empty toilet paper tube, a strip of paper, and some string!

DIY Valentines Pillow Boxes

Here’s what you need to make your own pillow box valentines:

  • empty toilet paper tube
  • colored paper
  • baker’s twine
  • scissors
  • glue stick

NOTE: If you’re worried about using a toilet paper tube for this project, you can cut an empty paper towel tube or wrapping paper tube down to the correct size, or make a similarly sized tube out of cardstock and start with that instead! Or here is how to make a gorgeous lace pillow box out of cardstock with a Cricut Maker!

Start by flattening the toilet paper tube, and press the creases on either side flat. Let the tube pop back open slightly, then push the top of the tube down in towards the middle, so that it creates a rounded fold.

Push in the other side the same way to close off one end of the tube, and then repeat at the other end of the tube.

Cut a 6″ x 1.5″ strip of paper and glue it around the center of the pillow box.

    I LOVE these little pillow boxes! I’m making 40 of them to give out for Valentine’s Day! I’m making mine out of various “Valentine” patterned card stock and wrapping a ribbon around horizontally and adding a small bow in the center of the ribbon. I posted one on my Face Book page and have gotten many ‘likes’ and positive comments about it! Thanks for such a cute idea!
